Companies formed

Since 1997, Oxford University Innovation has been responsible for creating spinout companies based on academic research generated within and owned by the University of Oxford, and has spun out a new company every two months on average.

Over £266 million in external investment has been raised by Oxford University Innovation spinouts since 2000, and five are currently listed on London’s AIM market.

The creation of new spinout companies, most of which are listed below, also channels millions of pounds back into University research, benefits local economic development and has created many new jobs in the region.
